101 grams of cocaine and a gun he thought was real

He was always a small time blip on police radar, never a major player in anything and perhaps there was a reason why.

On Monday (8/4), the Wayne Narcotics enforcement team (WayneNet) were closing in on Dominique D. Lundy, age 20, residing at House’s Motel off Route 31 in the Town of Arcadia.

Lundy had been known to be “dabbling in weed” but otherwise had no police record. Information was received that Lundy was trying to move up the drug social ladder and was in possession of a large amount of cocaine.

Members of WayneNet, along with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team conducted a vehicle and traffic stop on Route 31 in Arcadia, near the Lyons town line. Information was that Lundy also had a hand gun and police were taking no chances.

Once the take-down was completed, police found Lundy in possession of 101 grams ( 3 1/2 ounces) of cocaine. He was charged with two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd Degree and Criminal Possession With the Intent to Sell, both  Class B Felonies.

As for the weapon Lundy was supposed to have in his possession? Police were baffled when the realistic looking handgun was retrieved. Lundy too, was confused, telling police he had not yet fired the gun, but was waiting to find 9mm ammunition he thought the gun required. Come to find out Lundy had unwittingly purchased a starter pistol.

Lundy was arraigned before Newark Justice Michael Miller and remanded to jail on $1000 cash/$2000 bond. Grand Jury action is pending and police expect more charges in the case. Records show Lundy is not employed.
